The Social Kick Podcast #032 - Glenn Mills
In this episode, we’re joined by Glenn Mills (1980 Olympian [200br], 1983 NCAA Champion [2br], co-founder of GoSwim, technique and film guru). Glenn has decades of experience in swimming, notably winning the 200 breast at 1980 Olympic Trials in the closest trials 2-breast in history (.01 margin of victory), only to have to sit out those Games as part of the boycott. Glenn rallied to become NCAA champion in 1983 and spent years as one of the top breaststrokers in the world. In 2002, he co-founded GoSwim, the worlds leading provider of technical swimming videos, through which Glenn has worked with countless world-class swimmers and coaches with an up-close perspective of how the very best approach technique and training, and what it takes to be great. In this wide ranging conversation, we cover it all, from Glenn’s early days and the influence his brother’s life had on his swimming career, the legendary Cincinnati Marlins of the late 70s/early 80s, Don Gambril era of Alabama swimming & Jonty Skinner, founding GoSwim and sharing some learnings from the vast network of elite athletes and coaches that have crossed his camera lens.
